I thought I should mention that I am not at all this bloodthirsty or vengeful in real life, also I do not think I could fashion a blade to save my life. This is merely a hypothetical character inspired  by a myriad of books, songs and movies.


Your words hurt,
More than you could know.
Rather it is the silence.
The all enveloping silence,
Numbing,
Cold incision the lack of words make.
I try in vain,
To harness steel
To fashion a blade deadly,
Deadlier than the venom you spit.
A blade,
To pierce your soul;
To draw the agony I have paid.
The debt you owe,
Can suck you dry
But I am merciful,
I can be satiated by your pain alone.
I labour away,
Miles underground in a light forsaken cavern.
A refuge for my vengeance,
Rusted cage keeping my demons at bay;
But not for long.
After an eternity at least,
I look up to the lone ray of light;
Trembling in the presence
Of a blade so sharp
A dagger to pierce through rock
My avenger,
My last hope for salvation.
I cradle my creation in my arms
At long last,
I shall undo your wrongs.
As I pace through the shadows
A ghost lit up by the moon
My dagger glinting
In the light of the stars.
I am not the only eager one it seems.
As I stand at your door
I make a vow,
I shall not tremble.
I shall not waver.
I shall take what was mine.
Undo the wrongs you embraced.
I creep through the silence,
The silence you have made;
The silence I intend to vanquish.
I reach your chambers,
And I look upon your face
So innocent in the night;
The shadows shielding your demons,
Shielding the claws
That ripped through my veins.
I raise my sabre,
It quivers in anticipation
Or is it just me?
In your last few moments
You are awoken
Your primal instincts raising the alarm.
As time slows down
I look into your eyes,
A momentary lapse of purpose
As memories engulf me whole.
But the sight of a mist
Lurking behind your mask,
Brings me back to the moment
Returns me to my quest.
As I bring down my companion
I have but one regret,
I should have made you suffer
Collected my heart with interest.
